IN MAY a couple were left "devastated" after their wedding venue announced it was cancelling all bedroom bookings to accommodate Ukrainian refugees.

Iain Gordon and Kimberly Adams had booked the Keavil House Hotel, in Crossford, a full 18 months in advance for their big day and had already booked rooms for both the night before and of their wedding.

But the Crossgates couple were left shocked when they received an email informing them the accommodation was unavailable as it was required for a "corporate contract".

The Keavil management later confirmed they had handed over all of the hotel rooms to refugees after signing up to the UK Government's Ukraine Evacuation Scheme.

Iain said they were left "livid" by the disruption.

"One of the things we loved best was the way the hall was set up, it was lovely," he said.

"To have it all come crashing down, it is devastating to be honest."

The following month the Keavil was under new ownership.

Singaporean company, Buxani Hotels bought it and said it would be managed by Compass Hospitality UK Limited.

The couple went on to tie the knot in a "perfect" wedding day in September at Forrester Park Resort in Cairneyhill.
